DJI Matrice RTK V2
Built for industrial use, the Matrice 210 RTK V2 Professional Quadcopter from DJI is meant to go into hazardous conditions to relay vital information to personnel on the ground. With the addition of built-in RTK modules and the inclusion of a GNSS mobile station, the 210 RTK V2 is also capable of high-precision mapping. With up to 33 minutes of flight time and a range of up to 5 miles, it can be implemented in a variety of industries and professions. Inspecting infrastructure and getting a clear view of emergencies are just a couple of the jobs the Matrice 210 RTK V2 can perform.
AES-256 encryption: Encrypting the streaming data from Matrice to pilot helps secure sensitive information from prying eyes.
Obstacle Avoidance: The FlightAutonomy system uses front, bottom, and upper sensors to detect and avoid obstacles, and provide precise hovering ability.
Anti-collision beacon: Top and bottom beacons make the drone visible at night or in low-light conditions.
DJI AirSense: A built-in ADS-B receiver keeps tabs on the surrounding airspace and automatically provides the pilot with real-time data on nearby airplanes or helicopters.
DJI Mavic Zoom 2
Powered by a 1/2.3-inch 12-megapixel sensor with up to 4x zoom, including a 2x optical zoom (24–48 mm), 4 the Mavic 2 Zoom is all about dynamic perspectives. Due to the Mavic Zoom 2 being light and versatile, it's Ansell & Brown Aviations' go to drone that accompanies the helicopter wherever it goes. This allows us to rapidly show vital information to the ground crews without stopping production. Allowing them to make better informed decisions on the ground, reducing costs, increasing efficiency and making the job safer.
Camera Performance for the Zoom 2 has a 1/2.3-inch 12-megapixel sensor with a 2 x optical zoom, enhanced HDR photo, 100Mbps bitrate videos
Longer flight time lifted up from 27 min to 31 min due to higher battery capacity lower power consumption.
An increase of maximum flight speed changed from 65 kph (40 mph) to 72 kph (approx. 45 mph) in sport mode thanks to stronger propulsion.
Less noise during flight.
APAS (Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems). With this feature, the aircraft can automatically avoid obstacles in its flight path, when flying forward or backward
DJI Zenmuse Z30
As the first integrated aerial camera with an optical zoom up to 30x and digital up to 6x, the Zenmuse Z30 offers unparalleled image data capture. Enterprises are now able to capture the information they require from a greater range, making image data collection significantly faster and eliminates risk of harm to both personnel and equipment.
A high-powered zoom means that any movement in the system is magnified, so stability is of utmost importance. The Z30 incorporates DJI’s leading gimbal technology for stabilization within 0.01° and the same precision for controls. This enables long-range inspection that is always high in fidelity.
30 x Optical Zoom
The Zenmuse Z30 is the most powerful integrated aerial zoom camera on the market with 30x optical and 6x digital zoom for a total magnification up to 180x. Whether you are inspecting cell towers or wind turbines, it enables you to get a detailed look at structures, wires, modules and components to detect damage.
DJI Zenmuse XT2
Pairing the FLIR Tau 2 thermal sensor and 4K visual camera withDJI’s leading stabilization and machine intelligence technology, the XT2 quickly transforms aerial data into powerful insights that save time, money – and lives.
Housed within a weather resistant encasing is a combination of FLIR's advanced radiometric thermal sensor and 4K visual sensor - all integrated seamlessly with DJI's powerful enterprise drone platforms.
FLiR Infra Red (IR)
See the unseen. FLIR thermal sensors reveal details invisible to the naked eye by making subtle differences in temperature visible. This new view on the world can reveal when equipment or buildings are damaged, the location of lost people and much more.
D-RTK 2 Mobile Station
D-RTK 2 Mobile Station is DJI’s upgraded high-precision GNSS receiver that supports all major global satellite navigation systems, providing real-time differential corrections that generate centimeter-level positioning data for improved relative accuracy.
Accuracy to 1cm
D-RTK 2 Mobile Station fully supports GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, and GALILEO signals. Easy and quick to set up, the D-RTK 2 Mobile Station provides real-time differential data for drones to achieve centimeter-level positioning accuracy. The built-in high-gain antenna offers better signal reception from more satellites even when obstructions are present. D-RTK 2 Mobile Station also supports communication via 4G, OcuSync, WiFi, and LAN, ensuring uninterrupted, stable data transmission under any application scenario.
Featuring IP65 level ingress protection and a lightweight carbon fiber body, the D-RTK 2 Mobile Station is ultra-portable and up for any task, no matter how tough. The built-in IMUs monitor movements and calibrate the tilt sensors to alert the operator of any abnormalities during the mission, minimizing risks.
